Lens for wildlife

Excerpt: I was looking for a long lens for wildlife pictures on an Alaska adventure on a catamaran boat. I did have many opportunities for wildlife pictures (eagles, bears, whales) and taking from a moving catamaran makes taking still pictures challenging.
Excerpt: I have the Olympus 40-150mm F2.8 and the Lumix 100-300mm to me is just as good optically, only behind the high dollar Oly in weather sealing and of course speed (f4 versus F2.8). The Olympus has has the genius hood design but the Lumix 100-300 was the shock of the year lens wise for me.
Excerpt: My new Panasonic Lumix 100-300 lens has arrived, and I have tried it out from my balconny overlooking the Boston harbour. I love it, and am looking forward to go with a bus through Portugal and Spain in May! As usual it is a pleasure to shop from B&H. My stuff always arrives before I expect it too!
Excerpt: I use this lens for wildlife mostly. I love how clear the pictures are even with the full zoom. The quality of the pictures is amzing. The zoom is not that easy to adjust, but I understand that it can't be with this type of zoom. It just takes some getting used to the zoom.
Excerpt: Was looking for a micro 43 replacement for the Canon 100-400 which I sold because it was too heavy for me combined with the Canon 7D. Of course, since this lens cost about 1/3 what I paid for the Canon, I was not expecting the same image quality.
Excerpt: I use this lens for birding. The photos are from a nature preserve near Pawleys Island, SC. It is serious in length and weight. But the same lens in a Canon L series would be over 10k in price.
Excerpt: I haven't had this lens very long yet, but I've used it to take photos of dogs playing in the backyard and a football game and it did well at both of those tasks. I plan to use it to take pictures of birds and other wildlife when I get the chance.
Excerpt: Great telephoto zoom lens for M34, maybe one of the best for this format. There are a lot of complaints about softness at 300mm, but is essential to treat this lens like a 600mm on a full frame sensor. If NEEDS a tripod for best results. It also helps to avoid 300mm at the widest aperture.
